Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great mix of sound quality, performance, battery life and portability for the price
The Matrix3 offers a great bass and mids, very long battery life, portability and source versatility which other headphones in the same price and category cannot match.
Pro Good bass and clear mids
The mids are natural and clear so vocals don’t get lost in the mix. The bass has good punch and decent depth without muddying up the sound.
These headphones should work well on bass-centric tracks, as well as music that have a lot of vocals.
Pro Very good battery life
These are great wireless headphones for long trips. Playback time on Bluetooth is around 25 hours at average volumes. This is easily 2 to 3 times longer than most Bluetooth headphones in this price category.
Pro Can function wired or wireless
You do not need to worry about keeping these charged if you are okay with foregoing Bluetooth connectivity temporarily. You can connect these headphones to your smart phone/music player using a 3.5mm cable and continue listening to music even if the battery runs out.
Pro Clam shell travel case makes these easy to bring
The Matrix3 is easy to bring on the go and also gets extra protection when chucked into a bag, thanks to the included clam shell-style, semi hard carrying case.
Pro Comfortable over-ear design
Pressure on the ears is minimized due to the over-ear design and soft, memory foam ear-cups.
Con Highs may be lacking
The highs take a bit of a back seat compared to the mids and lows. There is not a lot of sparkle to the high frequencies, which can make music sound dull for some. These aren’t the best headphones for you if you are after an airy and detailed sound.
Con Ear cup opening may be too small for some
While the ear cups are classified as over-ear, the size of the cups is too small to cover all ear sizes. For those with larger ears, these would essentially be just on-ear headphones.
Con Headband can cause discomfort
You may feel some discomfort/irritation on the top and sides of your head. The headband padding is quite thin, so you may feel a pinching sensation when wearing these headphones for extended periods of time.
